Whew! I'm glad it's not just me.

Also, creating a drag stack invisibly, setting its parameters, then 
making it visible to start dragging makes it visible at the center of 
the screen, then changes its location, so that you have an initial 
visible jump. Probably the delay thing you're talking about.

One of the many reasons I stick with 6.x.
